Teens arrested over BT burglary

Detectives in Bodden Town have arrested four teenagers in connection with a burglary that occurred on Wednesday, 20 May at a house on North Side Road.

The four youths, aged between 15 and 18, were arrested on suspicion of burglary and a large majority of the property that was taken was also recovered.

Two of the suspects were arrested on the same day as the break-in and two were arrested in the following days.

They have since been released on bail pending further enquiries.

‘Although we have seen levels of burglary increase during the start of 2009 we are doing well in apprehending people after the crimes have taken place,’ said Area Commander, Chief Inspector Richard Barrow.

‘This particular burglary was solved thanks to the combined efforts of the community, which provided us with crucial information, and the subsequent swift police response.’

Residents are being urged to assist in the fight against burglary by taking note of security tips offered by the RCIPS on their website, at www.rcips.ky/household_and_property.htm.
